Verdant Solar’s Beach Cleanup CSR on World Ocean Day

Verdant Solar celebrated World Ocean Day with a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative by organizing a beach cleanup at Pantai Morib. This effort resulted from a collective concern within the company upon encountering alarming news about the staggering 10-tonne monthly accumulation of trash affecting coastal areas.

A team of 15 Verdiants participated in the cleanup event at Pantai Morib, embodying the company’s commitment to environmental responsibility. The beach cleanup at Pantai Morib proves Verdant Solar’s dedication to fostering a cleaner and healthier environment. As a responsible corporate entity, Verdant understand the importance of aligning business practices with sustainability goals, reflecting a holistic approach toward creating a positive impact on the planet.

Together, we protect and preserve these precious ecosystems for generations to come.

Celebrating Parents’ Day, Spreading Love and Care

At Verdant Solar, we believe in making a positive impact not only in the business world but also in the lives of those in need. We are excited to share the heartwarming results of one of our CSR initiatives, which would not have been possible without the incredible support and generosity of Verdiants and the public.

CSR Initiative for Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Sayang Alam Damai

Thanks to the generosity of our Verdant community, a significant amount of donations were raised for Pertubuhan Kebajikan Kasih Sayang Alam Damai. With a portion of the funds raised, we purchased essential items for our elderly residents, including adult diapers, toiletries, biscuits, cookies, and nourishing oats. These simple yet vital provisions go a long way in ensuring their comfort and well-being.

But we didn’t stop there. A total of RM 500 was donated as a monetary donation, supporting our elderly residents in various aspects. The impact of the contributors extends far beyond the material goods and financial support provided. Their kindness has allowed us to bring genuine smiles to the faces of our elderly residents.

At Verdant Solar, we firmly believe we can create a brighter and more compassionate future for our elderly community. As we continue our journey of corporate responsibility, we invite all to join us in making a positive impact. Everyone’s support, big or small, makes a meaningful difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Together, we can bring about positive change and make our community a better place for all.

Verdant Solar Employee Recycling Program

Verdant Solar has launched an engaging recycling programme within its organisation, recognising the importance of small acts that can significantly impact our planet. Verdant Solar’s employees actively collect recyclable waste to foster a green lifestyle, contributing to a more sustainable future from within the company. Through this initiative, Verdiants made a difference in the first month by bringing recyclable materials from their homes, including over 10kg of paper and 3.5kg of plastic and aluminium.

Employee Recycling Programme

Adding to the program’s excitement, Verdant Solar has joined forces with Dual Blessing, an organisation dedicated to providing career opportunities to individuals who are intellectually and physically disabled or those in recovery from drug addiction. Verdant Solar’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond environmental initiatives. By partnering with Dual Blessing, we actively create a positive social impact. Through technical and occupational training, Dual Blessing equips individuals facing unique challenges with valuable skills, empowering them to reintegrate into society and lead fulfilling lives.

This collaboration exemplifies the belief that sustainability encompasses more than just ecological concerns; it also fosters inclusivity and supports communities in need. Verdant Solar invites the entire community to join us in a sustainable future. By embracing small acts of recycling, we can collectively make a significant difference in preserving our planet for generations. Verdant Solar’s employee recycling programme is a testament to the power of individual actions to create a more positive impact. We actively contribute to environmental sustainability by collecting and adequately managing recyclable waste. As we strive towards a sustainable future, remember that even small acts can lead to transformative change.

Conclusion

Join Verdant Solar and our community in making a lasting difference for our planet and those in need. Together, we can create a greener and more inclusive world.

Verdant Solar: The Hope

In response to the recent floods in Kampung Parit Hj Me’an, Yong Peng, Verdant Solar demonstrated its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) by assisting affected communities. After pledging RM10,000, we have successfully raised RM13,180 worth of goods through the generous support of Verdiants and their friends and family. With each Flood Relief Package costing RM150, our team travelled to the area and distributed necessities such as food supplies, sanitary products, and toiletries to sixty affected families.

The Hope CSR Program

As a company that promotes renewable energy, we believe in supporting communities affected by natural disasters. This is why we launched the Hope CSR program, which aims to reach out to more communities in Malaysia in the future.

We invited the Johor branch to join us in our efforts to positively impact communities in need. We are pleased to announce that the event was a success, and we want to thank all those who participated for their support. By working together, we were able to provide much-needed relief and support to those affected by the floods.

Engaging in CSR initiatives such as the Hope programme assists those in need and helps build stronger relationships with our communities and stakeholders. At Verdant Solar, we believe it’s our responsibility as a corporate citizens to contribute to society and support the most vulnerable. We remain committed to our CSR efforts and look forward to continuing to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.

The aftermath of floods resulted in ruined furniture, loss of livestock, and no access to electricity for the small kampung in Johor, but we have witnessed the victims brighten up after receiving much-needed support! Join us today to bring HOPE to those in need!

Verdant Solar: Malaysia Book of Records The #1 Residential Home Solar Provider

The title alone speaks for what you’re about to read. Our company, Verdant Solar, is the number one residential home solar provider, and that has become a known fact over the years. Instead of gloating, let our results speak for themselves, and you can decide.

Best Home Solar Provider

Since 2013, we have ventured into the renewable energy industry with a pure mission to make the world a better place. We aim to provide the best solar energy service by including quality and wholesome installations. Our company’s solution is largely used by prominent industries such as Petronas, Daikin, Bandar Utama, Dutch Lady, 99 Speedmart, Mavisco, and other key brands.

According to Utusan Malaysia, Verdant Solar aims to double residential home solar installations this year, which would be 1,300 compared to 650 last year. The Chief Executive Officer of Verdant Solar, Zeth Lim, said the increase in residential home solar installation targets this year was mainly driven by the good response received by the company over the past two years.

Zeth Lim confirmed that the target increase is in line with the good response received from our customers and that the company also has an order book that will help it achieve that target. In addition, market acceptance is also increasing home solar installation with the help of ambassadors, who are there to promote solar installations for homes. Therefore, Zeth said in a press conference that he is confident that we can achieve our target this year. 

Malaysia Book of Records

Here is something many of you might not know: Verdant Solar has also been recognized as the largest annual supplier of residential home solar systems by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR)! 

This event was held on February 16, 2023, at Colony Star Boulevard KLCC with the press and top ambassadors present. It was a great tribute for us, and this has opened many more opportunities for us as a green tech company. 

Residential Solar Systems

Did you know that over the past year, Verdant Solar has helped property and residential owners in Malaysia reduce their electricity bills by up to 90 percent through the installation of solar energy systems? 

Zeth also mentioned that by 2022, our energy solutions will have helped save RM9 million in annual electrical costs. As utility costs across the country continue to rise, our company aims to be the pioneer that makes solar energy more accessible and easier for homeowners to own. 

Although solar energy is readily available, not all Malaysians understand its advantages for the environment, the economy, and the future. We are dedicated to helping Malaysia reach its 31 percent renewable energy goal, set by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (MESTECC).

Verdant Solar: What is next?

Being mentioned in Malaysia’s Book of Records has been a great honor, and Verdant Solar wants to live up to that honor given to us. By being named in the MBOR, we want to promote the transition of Malaysia’s energy industry further away from traditional fossil fuels and towards a more sustainable future, matching our targets from the very beginning.

In the near future, Verdant Solar plans to expand its offering into the field of electric vehicles (EVs) by supplying EV chargers, battery systems, and panels. We aim to become more than just a home solar company. According to Zeth Lim, we are thrilled to announce that our group is currently in the process of discussions with several manufacturers and partners about its future plans.

We understand that we have a long journey ahead, and it will not be easy. We see this as the beginning of a strong rise in technologies in the renewable energy industry that will allow us to reach more homeowners in Malaysia. In the short run, we hope to see an increase in the understanding of solar power among Malaysians.
